Do I need to hike with my camera anymore?

I’ve spent much of the last year hiking with my Nikon D3400, along with my Samsung Galaxy 8 phone.  And I’ve been very happy with the pictures they both take.

But I was fortunate enough to be gifted a GoPro Hero6 Black during the holidays through a drawing at work – (a gift from God?). 

 I’m not sure I’d have ever bought one, which may have been a mistake in judgment.

I’ve committed to carrying just the GoPro and phone while hiking the last few weeks and have been extremely impressed with the video and pictures.  And even more impressed with the picture capture the phone app makes.

With a Grand Canyon rim-to-rim hike scheduled in May, I may leave the Nikon behind to save weight.  Anybody have thoughts?

I do use Adobe Lightroom as the GoPro has limitations, but that’s true for the Nikon (as I have limitations 😊)

Below is a combination of mostly GoPro, but it’s hard to tell.
